I was listening to the Primal Fear album Delivering the Black, which is fantastic. Primal Fear is an awesome power metal band that takes influence from Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. They are German as well, which is a plus.
Good work by these guys. Better than their last album by far. they'll be going on tour w/ 5FDP & Avatar later this spring. Do keep an eye out for them. [video=youtube;IHeC2eWz-2U]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHeC2eWz-2U[/video]
A gift, and a fantastic one at that.
If you had to choose between the standard release and this 2-disc deluxe version, get the latter. All the songs are great. It's worth it. Even if it's packaged in cardboard sleeves instead of your standard CD case.
Radiorama - The Legend:
Finally found it at a reasonable price.
And with this album I've completed the group's early work collection.
I might be a bit biased cause I heard this a lot when I was a kid, but I still think this may be the best album of the 1980s. Fairly unique in its approach for the time and still highly enjoyable today, yet it along with Born in The USA really encapsulate what the decade was about, particularly the cosmopolitan "last breath of a cool yet dangerous New York" feeling. I love Steppin' Out, but A Slow Song is nice right now, so deep in the night.
It's okay. I do dig the album cover pic. I have to re-listen to their first album, though.
Latin Rascals - Bach To The Future:
Electronic, Hip-Hop, Freestyle, Electro
This is what happens when some NYC-based DJs get together and have fun with classical music tracks.
As fun and interesting as they were, I also got a kick at how they named their tracks, like Joy O.D., or my favorite Yo, Elise!
